Gainesville hosting tree climbing championship
GAINESVILLE - Thirty professional tree climbers from across the nation are expected in Gainesville Saturday for the 16th Annual Georgia Arborist Association Tree Climbing Championship.
Georgia arborist liason, Wendy Bishonden, says climbers from across the country will participate in five categories, but only climbers from Georgia are eligible to be named the State Champ.
More than 50 judges, technicians, and assistants will set up the events and prune the mature red and white oak trees on the grounds of the Martha Hope Campfire Cabin on Friday. The competition begins at 8:00 Saturday. This year’s event will also include a family tree climb.
